EE 2 Solutions to Practice Problem Set 1 [1] Note: Z(E) is the same as D(E) in class notes, i.e. the density of states function Z(E)dE = no of available electron states in the energy range E to E+dE. Therefore, no of (available) electron states in the energy range E 1 to E 2 is given by 2 1 ) ( E E dE E Z Remember from class notes (pg 21, eq 36) that dE E h m V dE E Z 2 / 1 3 2 / 3 ) 2 ( 4 ) ( π = Note that the volume of the rectangular box is V = 1x2x3 = 6cm 3 or 6x10 -6 m 3 .
